Spell out stand on MPs’ salaries, allowances: SC to Central Government



Supreme Court of India

New Delhi, Feb 20: The Supreme Court on Tuesday gave a “last opportunity” to the Central government to spell out its stand on constituting a permanent mechanism for determining sitting parliamentarians’ salaries and allowances.

Giving a seven days time to the Centre, a bench of Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul stated the affidavit filed by the union government on September 1, 2017, had not made its position clear,  news IANS quoted.

“Government of India policy is dynamic. However, you can’t modify it every day,” Justice Chelameswar said to senior advocate Ajit Sinha, who appeared for the Centre and told the bench that the issue was under the consideration of the government.

“You have not stated your position. Your affidavit in September 2017 was not clear about a permanent mechanism. When are you going to do it,” Justice Kaul asked, as Sinha sought a week, for the last time, for the Centre to firm up its stand.

“What is the government’s view on it? You want it or don’t want it? Your counter-affidavit (response) does not disclose anything,” Justice Kaul observed.

Apparently not happy about the delaying by the Centre on the issue, the apex said: “You may not have a last word, but you may have a last opportunity” to state your position.

Appearing for the NGO Lok Prahari, its General Secretary S.N. Shukla said that it has been 11 years since all parties in a meeting convened by the Lok Sabha Speaker had unanimously decided to have a mechanism for fixing the salaries and allowances of the members of Parliament but nothing has moved so far.

The court is hearing a plea by Lok Prahari demanding a permanent mechanism for fixing salaries and allowances of MPs. It has contended that lawmakers can’t decide on their own.

The Plea has also sought direction that former MPs can’t be given pension and other benefits after they have ceased to be the representatives of the people.

Further proceedings will take place on March 5.
